One of my favorite bloggers wrote a great post today about motivation. Since she is such an inspiration to me, I've decided to follow her advice and make a list of motivators, why I want to lose weight and change my body:

* I want to look like Sophia in a corset!
* I want to climb the stairs without getting winded
* I want to sleep better
* I want to fit into my sexy/skinny clothes that are crammed in my closet
* I want to be able to look at my full reflection/photographs of myself
* I want to be happy with myself
* I want to feel comfortable, and not be self conscious all the time
* I want to wear a bikini on the beach without a pareo
* I want to turn heads again
* I want to look good naked!

So, there you go. Maybe I should print these out and carry them around with me so that when temptation strikes (as it did last night at Ruby Tuesdays in front of the chips & guacamole) I can whip them out and be reminded.


  1. I read that blog post too and am in the midst of making my own list up :D I love yours,which pretty much sums mine up too........and I ADORE that photo of Sophia Loren,it's one of my all time favourites.Good luck.Look forward to reading your next post.xox

  2. I think I agree with all the above! It really sucks being self conscious, it restricts me from doing so many things!!

    Buying holiday clothes at the min is a nightmare- I would LOVE to wear a bikini.. Think thats all I would pack if i could :) Trying to hide fat arms & belly in things proves testing at times :)

    You look great in your pics- im a long way from looking as good as you :( xx

  3. Oh, Ms. Lanabanana, I beg to differ! You are lovely! :) Thank you for the compliment, though, I'm having an "ugly" day so I can use all the support I can get.

    My tummy is a big issue, too, having 3 kids didn't help but, really, they are grown up and I can't use that as an excuse any more! *blush*

  4. GlasgowGalah, I have so been enjoying your blog as well! It seems that we have similar goals, thank you for the inspiration and kind words!
